Jeb Dunnuck - The Wine Advocate 99

“Truly blockbuster stuff, and a wine that will compete with the ’99 when it’s at full maturity, the 2010 Côte Rôtie Côte Blonde gave up a spectacular array of sweet red and black raspberry, cassis, violets and underbrush … it has world-class tannin quality, a stacked mid-palate and blockbuster length. It will need another decade to show some maturity, and hold nicely through 2040.”

Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate 98

“… comes close to perfection … the bouquet offers up beautiful aromas of spring flowers, sweet forest floor, black raspberries, white peaches and kirsch. Seductive and full-bodied with velvety tannin, an endlessly constructed texture and huge length, this prodigious Cote Rotie should age effortlessly for 15-20 years.”

John Livingstone-Learmonth - Drink Rhone ******

“… Smoky blackberry-mulberry aroma, a high note in its soaked red fruits and a strawberry-floral hover that brings a relative delicacy. This is a beguiling bouquet, offers shafts of light and shade together. The palate holds self-contained red berry fruit with crackling tannins after the mid-point. It leaves a rather intellectual trail – mystery about its red fruit ID, the fusion between it and its tannins as if we are being kidded about its real potential … The detail in the juice on the aftertaste is impressive, like a Pointilliste painting. It is very, very long, a Beauty that doesn’t show an open book.”

*Many of our favorite wines are unfortunately made in very small quantities. To give as many customers as possible the chance to enjoy these wines, we have set a per-client limit on them. This limit is not per order but per client. So once this limit is reached, please understand that if a second order is placed at a later date, we won't likely be able to confirm it. You can find out more about whether a wine has a per-client limit (or simply, its physical availability) by either positioning your cursor over the quantity list on our wine list or by loading the individual item page (like the current page).
